Stop Hackers Receiving IP Address

Specs: Windows XP Pro, Intel Pentium III 501 MHZ

I found out that hackers can easily receive your IP address by you simply going onto their site. I also found out that if a hacker knows your IP address they can find out everything about your computer and what you are doing.

Does anyone know if there is a piece of software available where you can somehow hide your IP address? Is there software available for privacy?

yes you can by by using an anonymous proxy server.If you know how to use it,and configure it properly,then,it will be difficult for hackers to find your ip address,UNLESS the hacker behind the pc is good.

Sabertooth has it right in one.
To expand a little on that, the router will mask the true IP address with one that which it gets from the ISP.

For example: if true IP is
Router will show something like:

Even better is to compliment the router with a good software firewall that will monitor programs trying to access the net from within.

Sorta like a jail :-)
Router keeps the bad eggs out. Software firewall prevents those that are in from getting out.

....and to further expand a little on that firewall theory, take the perimeter wall of the jail as the hardware, and the correctional staff as the software, that pretty much locks down your PC.

.... unless of course the Governor (user) opens the inner gate (Software firewall).

dont panic, people over react to the word 'hacker', you stand about the same chance of being struck by lightening as getting 'hacked'.

More chance, I'd say. It's obvious a webserver knows your IP address, or you wouldn't be seeing the webpage. I'm not concerned about being hacked, but about spyware and malware in webpages, and trojans and viruses flying about the 'net. Get a good firewall and antivirus, and just worry about paying your ISP's bill.

being 'hacked' is different than spyware/virii/etc...this was the original fear

hello, i was recently in a multiplayer game and this guy was talking trash and so on and on. He then informed me that he knew my ip address and he did have it. Except that i am on my own computer and it was my mom's. I have a router for my own computer but how did he get that IP address? He then informed me that i lived in a certain state...which was correct but he stated a different city in which i dont live in...What does all this mean?
